Today we continued building the back steps that take us from the back yard to the Orchard and the Compost bins.
With excavation and planning done.. it is time to start the bottom steps. This is a big job and will be part of a bigger job – The Tank Level Wall – as well as being a huge step forward for us in regards to navigating the levels surrounding the house.
This is our second lot of earth steps, and the job is made a little more complicated by the fact that the steps have to fit into other structures.
We started the bottom steps – from Plot Level to Fire Pit level – a few weeks ago now… but the excavation has been hard and slow going at times. Our soil has been stripped of organic matter, and has the consistency of rock in places. br> br>Excavating the area where the steps will be placed is one of those areas.
